In the Lab at, students can experiment with the science of sound by manipulating the attributes of audio waveforms with our simplified oscilloscope.

QSynth introduces students to the oscilloscope - usually used to view the waveform of an audio signal. But QSynth works in reverse, inviting students to manipulate a waveform and then listen to how it sounds!

In QSynth, students experiment with:

  • Types of Waveforms: choose from sine, square, sawtooth, and triangle
  • Amplitude: change the loudness of the tone
  • Phase, Harmonics, & Detune: change the relationship of one tone to another
  • Keyboard: choose the note of the tone being manipulated

QSynth helps teachers make Cross-Curricular Connections between Science and Music and empowers students to create a whole new sound in the process.

QSynth is free to Students & Teachers with accounts.
